I’ve been struggling for a few months to find the answers to all of life’s questions… err.. I mean how to integrate an RSA SecurID soft-token with the VMware View iPad Client.
PCI Compliance requires multi-factor authentication for remote access to your cardholder data environment. It’s also a good security practice if you use remote access.
RSA SecurID is the most widely used form of multi-factor authentication, but there are certainly other options (Note: View only supports integration with RSA or RADIUS at this time).
Users do not have to carry around a physical RSA keyfob.
Users do not have to pull up the RSA app on their mobile device and remember the 8-digit token then fly over to the vmware view app and type in that code all within the 60- (or 30-) second window. That’s a little much for some folks to handle.
The intended audience of this technical post is your “all-in-one” administrator (like me) or a team of administrators across your compliance/security, VDI, or vSphere IT groups.
As many of our readers know, eGroup recently relocated into its new Mt. Pleasant headquarters location. You probably also know that it took a TON of sweat equity by the entire eGroup team to get it in the shape it is today. From the sales bullpen to the showpiece entrance to the executive conference room and connected demo lab to the break areas, watch the video to see the transformation with your own eyes.
Be sure to swing by if you’re in the area, we’ll give you a tour!
As the readers to this blog know, we’re big fans of Avamar. More importantly, our customers are big fans of Avamar. Just take a look at the recent successful implementations and immediate results. For example, one eGroup customer claimed “our weekend backup has shrunk from 48 hours to 1.5 hours.” Wow.
So why are we talking up Avamar? Well, in case you missed it, EMC just announced a complete end-to-end, channel solution geared towards the midmarket user. This is EXCELLENT news for our mid sized business users who require all the enterprise class functionality but at a lower price and complexity point. Read more >>
Many hospitals have made a successful transition to EMR, with widespread adoption throughout the hospital. In doing so, they have provided physicians and clinicians with fast and secure access to information, which improves the overall quality of care.
For example, these hospitals are maintaining HIPPA compliance by providing secure access to patient information, in part done by reducing, or eliminating, the need for passwords; taking advantage of Meaningful Use dollars; and, leveraging virtual environments to provide physicians secure, efficient access to patient information when roaming from room to room.
But how can the identity and access management successes in healthcare be applied to other industries such as banking, legal, energy and state and local governmen?
Join the eGroup Roundtable for a discussion with Chris Feeney, senior sales engineer at Imprivata, to answer this key question, and how you can win at providing fast and secure access to data in any industry.
